''I don't believe in fairies, but they sure do believe in me!
This is really exciting! I was just so happy when I made this piece ... simply SO happy. I really feel that my happiness reflects in this design. It was inspired by my mother--she believes in fairies and taught me about beauty. No matter what your life is like, you must find a way to make it beautiful!''
